The Best 15 Twitter Hashtags for Teachers

The Best 15 Twitter Hashtags for Teachers | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

As was the case with the three Twitter tools every teacher should be using, I have again chopped another part from this guide and this time it is about the power of hashtags as learning mediums. According to Twitter help center, '' The # symbol, called hashtag, is used to mark keywords or topics in a tweet. It was created organically by Twitter users as a way to categorize messages.'' Hashtag is a great way for users to get a tweet to appear in search results and discussion threads. An example of a hashtag is #edtech that is used by thousands of educators all around the world. People following this hashtag find it easy to monitor what people are talking about in this category and can also participate in the conversation as well

Twitter and Your Online Class

Twitter and Your Online Class | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

A 2010 study conducted by Faculty Focus found that more than a third (35%) of the 1400 higher education professionals surveyed "use Twitter in some capacity," which was an increase from the previous year. While not all higher education professionals agree that social media, and particularly Twitter, is useful for learning, we are finding out more about its capabilities as instructors experiment and report on their successes and challenges.

The power of Twitter - How I became a convert to Twitter

The power of Twitter - How I became a convert to Twitter | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
I signed up for Twitter several years ago but struggled to understand the point. What is it? What is it for? What information can I share in 140 characters? I did what millions of other people do: followed famous people, sportsmen, rappers, comedians and actors. Much of the time, it turned out, they didn't have anything that interesting to say and, after a few weeks, I gave up on it.

 

Then, as the site grew in popularity, I decided to give it another chance. I had about 30 followers, mostly my friends. Every few days I would tweet about what I was doing and share songs, music videos and news articles and now and again I would tweet one of the many musicians I followed. Good fun but not particularly productive.
